Look how much they've raised!
Well - what a week it has been, and it's only Thursday! Phew.
Last Thursday saw us announce the 8 Nicest Job in Britain 2016/17 finalists.
From hundreds of registrants to some incredible video submissions - we narrowed it down to the top 8 people.
Alice, Olly, Heather, Jenny, Sali, Nat, Andy and Maya - all worthy of the Nicest Job in Britain!
When we announced our finalists last Thursday, we also set them a challenge; help raise as much money and awareness for a charity as you can. (to be fair to all the charities, we pulled 8 of this years NJIB charities out of a hat) and allocated one each to the finalists.
I don't think we were fully prepared for what was to come.
Within hours to setting the challenge, the finalists set up pages on GivePenny (our fundraising partner for this challenge) and the money started pouring in. Social media went even more ablaze and the support came in its thousands.
Our finalists have received retweets, support and raise from the likes of; Ed Sheeran, Lorraine Kelly, Tom Kitchin, Hugh Dennis, Sinitta, local and national radio stations and even the national press.
Money has been flooding in too. With the total at over £5000 raised for our wonderful causes!
With the final fast approaching on the 3rd October - all is still to play for the Nicest Job in Britain.
